You are SO Smooth!


Happy Friday!  Today I'm featuring this adorable stamp set from Lawn Fawn:  So Smooth.  These darling images were so fun to color and create a little scene...and to be honest, I was really craving a smoothie when I was done!


Here are the products I used on my card and guess what?  This stamp set is on sale in the shop!  While you're checking it out, be sure to see all the new goodies that have arrived, too!

Oh Happy Day!

 I hope someone is having a happy day out there -- a birthday, anniversary, new job -- or it's sunny!  I try to celebrate every day even on those days that are challenging.  Having beautiful spring weather certainly makes it a good day in my book and always uplifts me!
 

For my card I used several Reverse Confetti items (see below).  Taking the Striped Frame die, I inlaid colored cardstock.  For the center, I water colored using Distressed Oxide inks and gold embossed the sentiment on vellum adding a few sequins.  I love the feathers in the Boho Vibes set and color coordinated them with the cardstock colors.
I'm excited to share my card in these challenges:

April Showers

 April showers DO bring May flowers -- and my allergies can attest to it!  But I don't mind at all because Spring is my favorite season!  I love spring showers.  Everything smells so fresh and clean after the rain stops and the trees, flowers and plants just jump to life when next the sun shines!
 
 For my card, I used the new My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Showering You with Love stamps/dies.  I may have gone a little crazy with pattern paper, but couldn't resist the yummy designs in the American Crafts Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pack!
 I really enjoy paper piecing...can you tell?!




I'm happily entering my card in these fun challenges:
